I have a Debian Linux server that I can use to run the camera. I would like to have a camera that was wireless, motion sensitive, and able to do video, but still would work well.

Museum of Modern Human Progress (American Computer Museum)

Tucked away in a small business park, on the first floor, and taking up maybe the space of a small business, is the most fascinating, engaging, informative, coolest and so many more, museum. It is a museum for geeks, nerds, and the down right aficionado of the computer world.  It makes the geek just go “squee” and is still interesting for kids. Continue reading →
